Tackle Food Stains With OxiClean™ #ChurchAndDwight #ad

My family is like a yo-yo.  Sometimes they like sweets and sometimes they don’t.  I; on the other hand, have a sweet tooth that just doesn’t quit.  Although I am particular about which desserts I want to gobble up, if I am facing one of my favourite desserts you might as well step aside.  You might even want to come back to me at a later time.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Come on, who doesn’t get weak at the sight of their favourite dessert?  I know I can’t resist:  pecan pie, ice cream, crème brulee, cookies, and the list goes on!  I’m not ashamed to admit it either; at least I have good taste.

Summer is the perfect time of year for ice cream … the only downfall is the heat.  If you don’t eat your ice cream fast enough it’ll end up melting.  That’s exactly when messes occur.  It’s not the mess that I mind; per se.  What I do mind is having; for example, the ice cream melt and dripping all over my clothes, and then me looking sloppy.  Even if that does happen, I don’t worry about getting the stains out!  Why, you ask?There’s a simple solution.  Try OxiClean™ Pre-treat and in-wash stain fighters (White Revive™, Colour Shield, MaxForce™ Foam and MaxForce™ Spray) and you’ll find that you’ll get results!

Do you want something that will get tough stains out the first time, something that is chlorine bleach free, and works in all machines (including HE)?  OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover Powder has been getting out tough stains around the home for years. OxiClean™ White Revive™ laundry stain removal is specially formulated with Wow White Technology™ that maintains whites to help keep them looking like new for longer. OxiClean™ White Revive™ targets tough stains and revives dingy whites when used as a pre-soak.

For 50% more brightening power versus leading value detergent alone, you can try pre-soaking (for best results) with OxiClean™ Colour Shield Laundry Stain Remover.  By combining tough stain fighters with colour safe brighteners, it helps keep your colours looking new and radiant longer!

To spot-treat a stain, I like using OxiClean™ MaxForce™ Spray because it combines five types of stain fighters to remove your toughest dried-in stains, including:

o Grass and blood

o Grease and oil

o Food stains

o Drink stains

o Soil and clay

It basically means that you can treat the stain now, and then wash it later when you can.

For powerful action from a pre-treater try the new OxiClean™ Max Force™ Foam Laundry Pre-Treater; it blasts away even the greasiest of stains the first time with its foaming action.  It’s simple to use.  Pump the supercharged foam directly onto the stain and gently rub into fabric.  Depending on the stain, let it sit from 5 minutes up to a week. Then wash with detergent in the warmest water the fabric will accept.

So whether your stains are caused by sticky BBQ ribs, buttery lobster tails or (in my case) sweet syrupy desserts I’ve listed several solutions for you to try!  I’m positive you’ll love the results!

4 Important Tips to Keep You Healthy ‘down there’ #ChurchAndDwight #ad

It’s summer and; therefore, oh so easy to get a yeast infection!  Here’s the good news … you don’t have to suffer!  Try these 4 tips to keep you happy and healthy ‘down there’.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

After a long winter, I realize that there’s nothing I’m craving more than the hot sun and patio weather. What I don’t miss are the pesky issues “down there” that also come with soaking up the sun. Yes, you read that right. For many women, the warmer temperature brings an increased risk of an “itch” that nobody likes to talk about – yeast infections.

Surprisingly, yeast infections affect more women than you think! Approximately five per cent of women experience reoccurring yeast infections (3 to 4 infections in the last year)[1] and this has a lot to do with heat. The infection occurs when moisture gets trapped and yeast can overgrow, causing itching, burning and discomfort. If you’ve had one, you know exactly what I’m talking about.IMG_1557The good news is that with a few simple tips, you can avoid that pesky itch.

  1.  Remember to dry off: Relaxing in a hot tub is the perfect way to enjoy a warm, summer evening. However, yeast grows best in a moist environment, making hot tubs a breeding ground for unwanted infections. This means it’s important to dry off well afterwards and change into dry clothes right away. Use this same approach when spending the day at the beach or pool.
  2.   Know your pH: Many vaginal health issues, including odour, itchiness and yeast infections stem from an unbalanced pH. RepHresh™ Gel is a gynecologist recommended product and clinically proven to be pH balanced which can help to eliminate feminine odour and relieve feminine discomfort.
  3.   Wear cotton undies: Unfortunately, your tight skinny jeans may not be the best option this summer. Warm, tight clothing allows for little oxygen movement making the perfect breeding ground for yeast. If you must rock the skinnies, wear cotton underwear.
  4.   Take healthy measures: RepHresh™ Pro-B reduces the number of urogenital pathogenic bacteria and yeast on vaginal surfaces. It’s clinically tested and works by balancing the yeast and bacteria that are naturally present in a woman’s body to help restore and maintain proper vaginal flora. Try adding one capsule to your daily routine to keep your body on track and ensure nothing slows you down this summer!

How are you going to beat the summer heat?  If you’ve tried either of these products, I’d love it if you left me a comment with your thoughts.  Don’t be shy … the more we open up and discuss these “issues” the more we educate ourselves.
